a complex one. the two driving forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a national symbol of the federal bailout of the auto industry and a center piece of mr. obama's campaign. former president bill clinton who will visit ohio next week with the president pointed to the plant's success as this summer's democratic party conventions in charlotte. >> the auto industry restructuring worked. it saved-- it saved more than a million jobs, and not just at gm, chrysler and their dealerships
. >> brown: in turn, mr. obama accused his opponent of trying to scare voters over their economic futures. he pointed to a romney ad running in ohio that charges jeep is shipping jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who've been calling their employers worried, asking, "is it true? are our jobs being shipped to china?" and the reason they've been making these calls is that governor romney's been running an ad that says so. except it's not true. >> brown: chrysler has said it has no plans to move the jobs. the romney campaign insists it's standing by its claim. there promised to be much more battling over economic policy, with the race in a dead heat and going down to the wire. we look now at the jobs picture with two economists with ties to the presidential candidates: john taylor of stanford university and the hoover institution. he advises the romney campaign on economic issues. and austan goolsbee of the university of chicago's booth school of business. he served as president obama's chairman of the council of economic advisers until last year. to the extent mob set
a version of chinese state-directed capitalism by the way of stimulus. mr. obama might squeak by. he has in addition to incumbency and a vestige of likability, a candidate who found his stride late in the campaign. but a second term will mean four years of spent ideas packaged in shopworn rhetoric to be shoved down the throat by a president who has nothing politically to lose. i'm not sure that's fair. would you agree with that? i don't think so. >> i would agree that the president's exhausted intellectually when it comes to what he plans to do for the next our years. i think there's a big question mark, though, also over what mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we know for sure is mitt romney's saying he's going to cut taxes and barack obama says he's going to raise taxes and neither one of these -- >> that's the argument in the messaging out on the campaign trail. but when you look at what this president has done -- >> no, no, no, no -- just stop. >> what? >> just stop. i'm talking about the future. you want to talk about the past. if i say the president's intelle
a question. it's turned the corner thanks mostly to the work of president obama. >> professor, romney today tried to provide a vision of what he'd like to do as president. let's take a listen to mr. romney. >> i know that when i'm elected the economy and the american job market will still be stagnant, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. i won't spend my effort trying to pass partisan legislation that's unrelated to economic growth. gee said he won't spend his time complain being his predecessor. in fact, he'll take credit for the economic recovery that's under way as he took credit for the success of the education in massachusetts even though he was only governor for four years. >> clearly the economy is not stagna stagnant. there are a lot of different statistical data that suggests the economy is slowly but steadily recovering, and it's real interesting for mr. romney to sort of suggest he's not going to play social conservative politics when he's been playing social conservative politics all throughout his campaign. all of his sort of commentary about women's iss
? the moderate pro choice governor from massachusetts, the guy who goo gave us the model for obama care or hangs closely with hawks, joins with religious right. is he dr. jekyll or mr. hyde, or is he both or neither? jack kennedy once said he felt sorry for his rival richard nixon because he doesn't know who he is and each stop he has to decide which nixon he is at the moment. worse case? do you think this guy mr. romney will suddenly have the force of will to betray the right? have you seen a single case when romney's broken free from the mob that's brought him this far, a single sister soldier when he says of the trumps, sununu
said is you can kiss the automotive industry good-bye if the president obama goes ahead with the auto industry rescue that he went ahead with that saved the auto industry. it was a success and mr. romney is trying to deny the fact that he was against it and trying to take some of the credit for it. >> the company that is doing best, ford motor company was not rescued. >> they were for the auto rescue, because they were afraid the whole supply chain would go out if the others went down. >> we're going to have more on the economy as we move along. the roundtable stays with us for the hour. i'm about to talk to john kasich in ohio where these themes are perfectly in his wheelhouse, because it's really what's going to decide ohio. before we do that, think it would be so interesting to really understand -- we talk so much about ohio. how do you win the state? how do both campaigns win it. i want to bring chuck back in. we've got a new poll coming out of ohio, 49-49, razor tight before the final debate. take a moment here to take us through how each side thinks they win the state. >> the jo
